Milo Mcintosh Imrie, a 23-year-old military veteran believed to be afflicted with post traumatic stress disorder, will be allowed out of jail if he makes his $25,000 bail, but he will have to stay in a residential treatment center, prosecutors said in a Dec. 20 report.
Commissioner Susan Jakubowski in Redwood City Felony Court denied prosecutors their motion to increase Mr. Imrie's bail.
Deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office arrested Mr. Imrie on Dec. 12 at the Menlo Country Club in Woodside on charges of trying to disarm a police officer and assault with a deadly weapon, that weapon being a shovel.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges on Wednesday, Dec. 19, and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. on Feb. 1, 2013, prosecutors said. Mr. Imrie is represented by Redwood City criminal defense attorney Geoff Carr.
Mr. Imrie allegedly threatened violence in the Woodside home of his 22-year-old cousin, prosecutors said. While holding a gasoline can, Mr. Imrie allegedly told his cousin that he planned to kill both of them either with a knife or by dousing them both with gasoline and igniting it, prosecutors said.
The cousin took the gasoline can from Mr. Imrie and went into the kitchen to wash his hands, where he noticed knives on or in a butcher block, prosecutors said. The cousin took the knives outside and threw up them on to the roof, but while his back was turned, Mr. Imrie allegedly hit him once with the shovel and fled the house, prosecutors said.
Deputies found Mr. Imrie at the Menlo Country Club on Woodside Road opposite Woodside High School, where he reportedly resisted arrest and tried to remove a gun from one of the deputies, prosecutors said. The next day, in transit after being released from a psychiatric evaluation hold, he ran away when the door of the patrol car was open. Deputies caught and quickly subdued him, prosecutors said.
